Grain has boarded documentary The Mother Of All Fights, co-directed by Oscar-nominated Brazilian filmmaker Juliano Ribeiro Salgado.
Currently in post-production ahead of completion in 2024, The Mother Of All Fights follows Brazil’s social change through the figure of indigenous activist-turned-politician Sonia Guajajara. Orlando von Einsiedel and Grain Media’s Chloe Leland will executive produce the film, in collaboration with producers Alice Aedy and Joi Lee of UK production company Earthrise.
The film is directed by Salgado and Ivi Roberg for their Brazilian firm Uacari Films. Salgado was nominated for the best documentary Oscar in 2015 for The Salt of the Earth, which he directed with Wim Wenders. Guajajara and indigenous Brazilian congresswoman Celia Xakriaba are also executive producers.
